If there's one such hatchback that is known by everyone, right from a teenager to an adult then it is the Maruti Swift. From its first generation to the facelift of the third generation, I have personally witnessed it all. However, this is not a Swift special post but a modification one. Like every other modification we cover, this one is different as we have the Type 1 Maruti Swift which has been repainted and now gets Audi's Nardo Grey colour scheme. It looks DOPE.
This particular modification is done by Brotomotiv, a Pune based Automobile Details shop. Be it ceramic coating, graphene coating, repainting of an older vehicle, interiors update, restoration of an older vehicle, wrapping and among others, they cover it all.
In this particular video, this 2008 Maruti Swift came in with the original silver colour paint scheme. According to the modifier, it was amazingly maintained but had few minor dents, scratches on the bumper and more. The first step they followed is removing the panels along with the bumper of the vehicle and they started the denting process.
To remove the dent from the vehicle, they use a dent puller, however, the correct use of that is to first peel off the paint from the vehicle using the grinder and then only pull out the dent. After the denting is done, they use the body filler and putty application on the car.
Furthermore, to bring more character to the Type 1 Swift, they decided to colour some of the body panels including the roof and mud flap of the car in gloss black colour. Turns out, the dual-tone option of nardo grey and gloss black fits amazingly well with each other. The wheels of the Swift were kept stock with the wheel caps and the gloss black treatment on that fitted well.
Once the exteriors were done, it was time for the interiors. The interiors were kept like stock and only bare minimum like an all-black theme and orange highlights were given. The latter was shown in the AC vents and door panels.
Under the hood, this Swift carries a 1.3L DDiS diesel engine sourced from Fiat. This four-cylinder diesel unit churned out 74 bhp with 190 Nm of peak torque. This diesel unit was finally discontinued in starting of 2020 when the country shifted towards the BS6 fuel.
